to help the areas with a lot of damage. we've turned on a lot of the fema assistance to get people moved or get them rentals. we're working to get more people in these areas, thing rs starting to get in there. but the two priorities are the power restoration to get power back on. we're going to refer back to the utilities. we got some of the equipment today. we're moving equipment from the west coast to the east coast. you can't drive it fast enough, so the departments are now flying utility trucks and crews from the west coast. some began landing this evening. that's going to continue as we bring in more resources to support utilities. >> when you see the pictures, we've seen this in several areas. when you look at the devastation and homes completely gone, homes just ripped off their foundations. is this what you expected or worse? >> no, this is why the evacuation orders were issued. with storm surge, which is what we get with these type of systems, people tend to think of this as what you see from hurricanes like we saw in mississippi and other storms. when this happens, that's the p
plan. >> excellence. >> well executed. >> i thank you. >> a lot of criticism of fema back in katrina. today we hear nothing but good about fema. >> i thank craig would lives and breathes this stuff. >>neil: not so fast because all in rescueville is not so great. a lot of the folks they represent would like to kick them in the ass. this is the reality. welcome, everyone, not so happy friday. mr. president, you may want to wait on the "heck of a job" thing because rescue efforts have become heck of a joke for folks in the northeast fuming. because the help isn't coming. in gas. no power. no food. they have had it. >> restaurants and boats and homes are looted. >> the coast guard has not been here to help. >> come here and walk into the streets here. the water is this high. you have to wear the waders. >>neil: that is just on staten island. homes are swamps. motorists are stuck if -- in gas lines, four hours or more if you can find a place to fill in. two-thirds of gas stations even now in new york and new jersey remain shut down. out of juice. out of gas. thousands are fuming, out of p
, power or water was a repulsive idea to some. >> no one else has been here. i have not heard from fema, the coast guard, no one. it is startling. >> very angry and fed up. what are we, is this america? i don't know. i don't know. i don't like it. we are going downhill. >> i came here four or five years ago, expected we came here for a better life, opportunity, and this is what we come from. this is ridiculous. not how it is supposed to be. gerri: it wasn't just residents. take a look at the front page of "the new york post." an abuse of power, there were two generators being used for the marathon to power the media tent. a third backup generator that wasn't being used. for more on this, joined by adam shapiro in staten island where he has been reporting all day long, and editor-in-chief of runner's world which follows all of this. i will start with you, what has been the response from people you have been talking to all day long about this idea of having a marathon in the wake of sandy? >> people wanted it canceled. when it was announced it was being canceled i asked police officers wh
about defunding fema, getting rid of fema. >> that is particularly a fascinating e.e. you are referring to his comment during one of the republican primary debates when he was asked directly, what would you do about fema? as part of your efforts to shrink the federal government, would you send fema's responsibilities back to the states? his immediate answer was, absolutely. he said, not only would that be a good idea, but possibly you would even turn it over to the private sector. raising ee prospect, what i called in the article, sort of pay as you go rooftop rescue program. where if you had the money, you could be rescued from your flooded house. if you did not, well, too bad. which i think is something that would really be abhorrent to most americans. the time when you really want and appreciates big government, as it is sometimes derided, we need to see the national guard, need to see help coming from the federal government, is when there is an all-out disaster. and the idea that you would reflexively say, shut down fema, let the free market handle this problem, to me -- well, it is
for fema loan. these loans are typically a very low interest rate around 4% interest rate loans that help these consumers rebuild their properties. not a prerequisite for taking loans is in the future, they have to purchase their flood insurance policy so this doesn't happen again. >> host: so you represent mortgage brokers. >> guest: insurance agents and brokers. >> host: has your group estimated yet the cost to them? >> guest: we have not yet. this storm is such a colossal nature that it's going to take a while to get our arms around the total cost. the estimates i've seen soap are but the damage is anywhere from 5 billion to 20 billion. i've seen some estimates as high as 20 billion in damages. now i think that's even premature because we've been in contact with fema and day right now, and i think correctly, they are focused 100% on recovering and disaster assistance, helping people on the ground. they haven't even begun to put pen to paper and holy calculator out and start adding up the cost. and so, these estimates would be 5 billion to 20 billion are kind of from 30,000-foot level,
with the fema guys all the time, they're doing everything they want. >> i think that's right. i acknowledge that on the show, bob shrum. i want to go to my friend, ed rogers. >> hey. >> that's when obama was on the beat. first he was in the white house in the oval office. then he traveled. then he walked with chris christie. okay. he was doing his job. now he's back on the campaign trail. i point i'm making, ed rogers, is this. the aftermath, you know, sandy is officially over. whatever that means. but the aftermath has been brutal. much more brutal than people thought. and it extends to almost a third of the country, ed. and somebody often takes the blame who shouldn't take the blame. obama's campaigning. who's taking care of these kids? >> sure. >> in staten island who horribly, tragically, have lost their lives? >> well, you say it's horrible, and in politics, bad gets worse. and natural disasters follow a certain political pattern. at first people want the sheriff and the sheriff has to come to town and restore order and maintain peace and rescue people. now they kind of want the nurse
. >> michael brown, in charge of fema, is criticizing president obama. >> brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. >> brown would have said more but he was busy responding to katrina. >> garbage, crap, and nonsense. >> you're watching fox. you're hearing about a state department, the cia does nothing. >> you are misleading the american people. >> at least we don't live in swing state hell. >> jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> the biggest load of bull in the world. >> why do you say these things, mi romney? >> joe biden is using his teeth to illuminate hoboken. >> find that special someone in the early voting line. >> our destiny is in the hands of the american people. >> i will fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. >> let's get to our panel, dana 34i8 bank is political columnist for "the washington post" and toure is my colleague and the co-host of "the cycle." desperate mitt, desperate measures. in your column this week you write, when the stakes are high, as they are for mr. romney, it must win ohio, the truth is o
to the hardest hit areas to distribute water. fema officials arrived there today with food and supplied. governor christie's office announced today that new jersey transit will restart with service tomorrow. officials are working to expand the limited service of the subways. amtrack will begin to run partial service of the city tomorrow. growing problem will be lines at stations stretching for more than a mile. in the city of yonkers officials are limits customers to no more than ten gallons. in south manhattan people went through dumpsters today to look for unspoiled food thrown out by a super market. officials warning that the east coast could be hit by another storm this time next week. the devastation on staten island the new york borough that was the hardest hit. we get the latest from nbc news correspondent. anne? >> good evening. three days after the hurricane. people in this community are accusing government agencies here than with the wealthier parts of the city. every person on this block lost everything. >> staten island has had enough. >> we want everyone to know that we are hurting h
be receding, but the frustration on staten island seems to be growing. >> fema won't help us. >> reporter: and local officials pleaded for more supplies. >> they cannot go on. this is america. it's not a third world nation. >> reporter: one even attacking the red cross, which just arrived here today. >> people are buried in their own homes. nothing to eat, nothing to drink. >> reporter: but today, in the tottenville section of staten island, a neighborhood almost completely destroyed be i the storm, we saw relief in action. >> so, they got pizza, they got socks and gloves. come on over. >> reporter: this used to be mike abruzzo's home. >> my youngest daughter yesterday, faith, said, daddy, i want to go home. i just told her that, it's going to be awhile, hon. she don't understand. she's 6. >> reporter: almost nothing remains. except for a few small tokens. while we were there, neighbors arrive with his wedding picture, found several blocks away. like so many we talked to, he repeated over and over, "at least my family is safe." his neighbors across the street were not so lucky. two of the
and things, get it to this table. >> reporter: today, a welcome flood of relief as national guard, fema, red cross and other agencies set up camp, bringing much-needed supplies to this hard-hit working class community. >> thank you, fema. >> reporter: 24 hours after this desperate plea onmn[Ñ live television. >> but you need to come here and help us, we need assistance. please. >> reporter: there is now hope. >> there is a renewed hope and spirit, and that is what they needed. >> reporter: families crowded around the tables to pick up canned food and ready to eat meals, with more than 100 lining up for dry ice, others bringing clothing for their neighbors. temperatures are dropping tonight and parents here are worried about their children. the homeland security chief and fema officials today oversaw the relief effort. >> folks are going to be going door-to-door in these communities and making sure that nobody is left out. >> reporter: as one person put it, it is not charity, it is humanity. >> i'm from brooklyn, here since saturday, today is my day off, i'm here trying to help a little more
,000. and at the time that covered the whole cost of the house. >> so fema, was it fema money. >> it was fema money. i said to my. >> did you cash the check? >> yeah. >> do you feel bad about that. >> sure. i won't do it again. >> should do you 250 back to the government? >> i give more than that to charity. i'm not going to give it to the government it will waste it. >> that's true. that's my beef, too. so, you say that if you are in any kind of, like malibu, california, maybe you are up on the hill but that's a fire zone. so, if you are in any kind of zone, that may be risky, the government should say hey, you are on your own and if you can find an insurer who is going to do that for exorbitant price if you can't that's tough. >> exactly. private insurer are experts in figuring out what's a risk. that's information that the government obliterates by saying we don't want anyone to lose. we will cover you. >> bill: they cover you at a high rate. they are not giving you bonus on this. if you have to buy insurance beachfront government. >> you are not paying the real cost. otherwise, the flood insurance
his position on fema, just like he wouldn't talk to us about his tax record? i find it interesting t thematically we're back where we started. when voters are asking themselves, who can you trust, to your question, look no further than what the themes have been throughout this election. >> the republicans over the last decade have proven to the american people they are not about compromise. >> right. >> they are about power. and the democrats now are in pretty good shape to, i think, hang on to the senate and president obama's re-election looks pretty good right now. if it was a closing argument, what do you think the best closing argument would be for mitt romney right now? i mean, is reaching across the aisle, or should he seriously advocate for some policy that he hasn't been definitive on? >> you know, i think what he's trying to do, he's kind of gone small. this is, he's back to sort of the strategy he had during the republican primary, which is, he just doesn't want to make a mistake. he's trying to run down the clock. >> no interviews. >> that's right. >> i have never seen any
a great job. fema is bailing. fema wants to help out, should come in here with generators, plug them, in get gas stations up and running and people can live their lives again. get generators to get the power going. then you won't see the people dumpster diving or waiting for lines to get gas. >> andrea: i want to get bob in here. what about the politics of it? we're four days away from an election. should president obama be doing more than photo op in new jersey and one in the war room? >> bob: let me get the marathon out of the way. the fact it's in central park is more insidious. what you are doing is picking out isolated incidents here. there were 8.5 million people out of electricity when it was at its peak. 3.8 million without electricity. they cut in half number without electricity. fema is doing math job. fact of the matter is this has been, this is one of the most massive storms, storm surges we have seen. you can't say it would be nice if they can do more. they are doing evening they can. i don't understand why the national guard has not been called out. >> greg: who can for
around the country. i we have a discussion about fema and also one about u.s. foreign policy in asia. >> we don't have the highest mountains or a disney world. what we have is a great state. this is a sugar maple in for a hard rock maple. the average is 2%. what we do to start the season is drill hole to win the tree about an inch deep. this tree here in 2012, right here you see that you can't get the sprout. that means that that tree is healthy. the scar tissue below and there is scar tissue above -- so it won't run the sap at this point. semester we will go for the other side of the tree. we will do this in 2011 in 2010. you might think that we are hurting the truth, but we can assure that the trees have been tapped 100 years in a row and they are still producing. >> more from vermont tv this weekend. as booktv and c-span's local content vehicles look behind-the-scenes at the history and literary life of the vermont state capitol, montpelier, vermont, on booktv and c-span2. sunday at 5:00 p.m. on american history tv on c-span3. hurricane sandy is now believed to be one of the costl
with fema, how much do you think that may have had an impact, because it stopped whatever momentum mitt romney may have been enjoying. >> i would say i think the race is kind of upset. mitt romney got a bump off the first debate. by october 15th, the race had settled to where it was up until hurricane sandy. i point to the "washington post"/abc news, doing tracking polls every day about a week and a half now, the last two rolling tracks we've asked about president obama's job performance on sandy, 78% two days ago said excellent or good, 79% said excellent or good. yesterday. when you're dealing with the margins here, it can't hurt. i think the fact that the president got to be the president, kind of be bipartisan, to go up, look at things, that role, remember the people haven't decided yet, aren't partisans on either side. they tend to be independent on affiliated -- unaffiliated voters. who don't like that partisanship. for him to be with chris christie looking like they were working together for the good of the people in new jersey and new york, that accrues to his broad benefit. do
, the federal government through fema and the fema funds. third, state funds and state programs that are available. we had a conversation with the president last night. once again, he was asking how he could help, how the federal government could help and what came out of that conversation is we will be the blowing 30 joint teams in the region. between the state and the federal government through fema. these teams will have an expert in each area. an expert with private insurance, and expert with fema, and an expert with the state who knows the state housing programs these joint teams will be deployed in the 30 key areas in the region and fema will be providing the 30 personnel for those teams. we think the president for that. it is another step in a full agenda of federal assistance to our region. we thank them for that. those 30 teams will start to be assembled next week. they will be dispatched to the affected communities speaker governor andrew cuomo of new york. a couple things he pointed out. 90% of the island, which is really such a huge number when you think about it, th
by the red cross and fema and janet napolitano was on the ground. those are all important steps at the very least symbolically for the residents of this neighborhood who have felt cut off. they're still kind of angry that it took so long to get here, but fema and the red cross are on the ground right now, so that's a positive step. the thing to remember, the fema facility, red cross, they're about a mile away from here. a lot of the people in this neighborhood don't necessarily know they're there because they have no tv, no internet, no phone service. little cell service, so word of mouth isn't getting around to quite as many people as maybe as those who could use that facility over there. so that's still a challenge for the red cross and fema to serve people inside this neighborhood and get aid to them when people don't necessarily know they're only about a mile away. >> thank you very much. as we said, so many were frustrated, but they're there now trying to help. a lot of people there have trouble communicating. a these are areas where there's a lot of poverty and that's something that i
, it allows the people to authorize people to move into hotels or whatever is necessary. >> how is fema doing? >> that's one of the complaints, it's been the slow responsover all. tread cross just got here yesterday. i was working on getting them here for three days. fema just got here yesterday, but they really won't be on the ground until today. >> they've been at the shelters, though, as well. >> they just started yesterday. a few representatives with some basic information. but they will be on the ground today. >> okay. so we're having a meeting with them later today to lay out going door to door. >> and the mayor, how is he doing? we have the marathon coming up. you were fairly critical of that yesterday in your comments. what's your thoughts? >> listen, overall, i understand and i really do respect. the mayor has a tremendously difficult job and overall -- and he's done a pretty good job handling this. i do, though, i really disagree with the call for the marathon. i think it's wrong. and a big part of it is a couple reasons. first and foremost, just yesterday we're pulling bodies out o
was not disproportionate, from the wealthier. >> absolutely not, there are fema task forces assigned here and helping with the searches. >> we are in the community talking to the residents that have been affected. and we're urging everybody to register with fema. >> i never planned to leave here, i thought i would stay here. >> reporter: she didn't lose members of her family but did lose almost everything else. >> i want to go home, but there is no home, i can't go home, and it is killing me, i want to go home to my house. >> reporter: at 62 and a grandmother, she is trying to find traces of her life. >> this is the only wedding photograph of my mom. >> reporter: a moment of joy, as the water on staten island recedes amid the widespread desperation and grief. and adding to that, two children were found today, the bodies missing. they were ripped from their mother's arms during a hurricane we asked the mayor about the outrage here on staten island, waiting for his response, brian >> ann curry, for people not familiar with the city, you can see where ann is on top of 30 rockefeller plaza, and a lot of
